Weddings Scheduled

From: The Oakland Tribune, 18 February 1912


Bernard Ryan of Toronto, Canada, the fiance of Miss Georgia Cope, has arrived, and is a guest at the Cope household on Euclid avenue. The wedding is to take place February 26 and will be a quiet home affair, witnessed only by the relatives and closest friends. Miss Vera Cope will be her sister's bridesmaid. The bride-elect is the elder daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George W. Cope, and is prominent socially and musically. Bernard is one of the prominent lumberment [sic] in Toronto, Canada, where he and his bride will establish their new home. Mrs. David Hartley is coming from her home in Seattle to be a guest at her sister's wedding, and will remain with her family a month or so.

Another wedding on March 14 is that of Miss Roberta Gould, and Warner E. Brittain at All Souls' Chapel, Berkeley. Miss Henrietta Gould will be her sister's only attendant. Emmet R. Fertig of Stanford University, a fraternity brother of Brittain, will be his best man, and the four ushers will likewise be fraternity brothers. Wilson S. Gould, an uncle of the bride-elect, will give her in marriage. Mr. and mrs. John B. Brittain, parents of the bridegroom-to-be, will be present, the mother having already come from Pittsburg a few weeks ago, and the father is now on his way to the coast. Miss Gould is the daughter of Mr. and mrs. George S. Gould, and a popular member of Berkeley's younger set. Brittain is a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania and is now engaged in business on this coast.
